Today's Weed News For January 7th 2019 #VANCOUVER

6 months ago


For today's week news we go to the great City of Vancouver.

It's official, Vancouver's first two Cannabis stores are finally open for business!

It's taken over two months since Canada's cannabis legalization for the city of Vancouver to get their act together and give people a brick-and-mortar option to buy their cannabis.

One of the pot shops is owned by City Cannabis Company and located on Fraser Street and the other one is run by the Evergreen Cannabis Society and is located in Kitsilano.

Both companies agree that getting all the necessary licenses and approvals was anything but easy with lots and lots of legal hoops to jump through.

In British Columbia, so-called non-medical retail licenses need to first get approval from the province before they can be referred to local governments or where applicable, indigenous communities for additional approval by them.

The province of British Columbia reported referring as many as 232 applications to local governments. But as it stands right now, out of those 232, only six licenses have been approved and issued. The two above-mentioned retail locations that are already open are part of those six so I guess BC can look forward to just four more retail locations in the foreseeable future.

But hey, at least there are some places where you can buy weed at around Vancouver. That's definitely a good thing.

But honestly, I feel like if the demand is there, people will find a way to get more pot shops to open. Just give it a little time...

And that's what's up in Vancouver!

As I kow, British Columbia stay behind other provinces in issuing non-medical cannabis licences, which must first be approved by the province and most likely will approval, from local governments.

Thanks for update.

Good shit man, I like hearing about bricks and mortar stores opening up. It's not just talk about legalizing, it's physical. Thanks mate, bong on bro. :-)

But hey, at least there are some places where you can buy weed and in around Vancouver. That's definitely a good thing.

That's a good one, hopefully in due time as the demand gets higher more stores will be open. It's getting better

We need a lot of Cannabis stores just like the gas stations.


i agree...or they could just start selling weed at gas stations =')

More stores will open, no doubt about that. The more smooth the distribution and legalization will get the more stores and market it will have. Its simple demand and supply rule.

The cannabis demand on this stores will be way too much for them to handle. The government just have to license more stores....this is a good start in this new year

Getting somewhere to get weed is really a good news , though the demand may be high there, they is always the joy that they would get weed yo buy.

great news that there are great companies standby in weed supply.
